USA Lunch
Bailliage of Greater Miami
Miami, December 4, 2016
Symphonic delight aboard MS Konigsdam

The Bailliage hosted a stellar cruise ship induction luncheon aboard Holland America’s MS Koningsdam.

The cruise company dates back to 1873 as the Netherlands-America Steamship Company. Its new ship is the largest, most innovative in the fleet with a passenger capacity of 2,650 and boasting a sleek decor built upon a music theme.

Eighty-five members and guests were escorted to a private champagne reception with pass-arounds followed by lunch in the signature Pinnacle Grill. Once everyone was seated, Charles Radlauer, Bailli Provincial of Southeast, took centre stage and inducted the MS Koningsdam into the Bailliage of Greater Miami. Bailli Nancy Radlauer welcomed the ship proudly noting that the entire fleet of its sister ships are members of the Miami Chaîne family.

Known for its cuisine because of the collaboration with great chefs on its Culinary Council, Holland America delivered a flawless symphony in five courses proving perfectly in tune with our palates.

As the afternoon drew to an end the ship prepared to sail and we disembarked with dreams of attending another gastronomic concert.
